You can't understand something that doesn't exist. Super-entities don't, but we do know our enemies do exist. Why not try to understand them instead?

Come to think of it, rejecting the idea of God may be the first step to eliminating evil. Then again, there are some people who find "God" as their sole reason not to do evil acts, so that might not be a perfect solution at all.
inb4 the religious folks take offense.
